:) I used to be a computer hoarder... I actually still own an Apple IIgs and even an ImageWriter II color 24-pin dot matrix printer.
Why? Well, the computer makes sense, I want to show my kids what computers were like when Daddy was growing up, the printer? Meh, a huge paperweight I guess, but you can still buy ribbons for it.
I used to have a 386DX-25 setup, a 486-DX/2-66, and a Pentium 166 MMX, just "in case" I wanted to play around with older stuff.
I have since thrown those away, I turned them on about once every other year, for about 2 hours. :)
I do still have a Pentium 4 under my desk with Windows 98 on it. It works, the RAM and hard drives have been upgraded in it, but really, what am I keeping that for?
Under another desk I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 machine with Windows XP on it, but frankly, it hasn't been turned on in 3 or 4 months. I have it "just in case" I want to run something on XP.
You have no idea how hard it was to throw out the three older PCs, but you know what? I don't miss them. You can't keep everything (or you shouldn't) and they really weren't being used.
Speaking of digital data, this summer I discovered Amazon Prime Music, a recently added feature. I have a ton of ripped music on my computer and copied to my phone and iPad... you know what I've discovered? Almost everything I listen to is now free on Amazon.
Between purchased shows and movies and all the Prime Videos, I have more entertainment than I can really ever consume. :)
I'll have a desktop for a long time, if only because I need a full size keyboard, mouse, and large monitors (I do software development so I have three 30" monitors at my desk, I can't do this from a laptop).
The funny thing is all the RIAA/MPAA lawsuits did nothing to get me to stop using Torrents (which I used to do 24/7).
You know what did? Reasonable cost options and ease of use streaming. Giving me legal options killed the illegal options cold. It took them long enough...
About 2 years ago when I put the Roku boxes in place, I deleted over 40TB of movies, most of which had never been watched. Crazy waste of time and money, oh well... :)
The freaky part? My electric bill went down about $50 a month once I got rid of the server and DVD/BR ripping computers which ran 24/7. I put a kill-a-watt device on them and found they used about that much power each month, for 6 years...
